February is upon us, and you know what that means–the Super Bowl, yes, okay – sure, but no, we’re talking about Valentine’s Day! Since the days of Win Schuler, Valentine’s Day has held a special place in our heart. Win’s motto was to serve good, hearty food in a comfortable, home-like atmosphere. He made it a point to greet his guests with a name and a smile, which proved to bring patrons back time and again – and he pulled out all the stops on Valentine’s. This standard of service has carried over year after year, and Schuler’s remains one of Michigan’s, top places to dine on Valentine’s!
If you’ve dined with us before, you know we have a little something for everyone, but let’s take the guesswork out of this special day. Here’s our idea of a perfect Valentine’s date spent at Schuler’s.
There’s really not a bad seat in the house. Enjoy the ambiance of the fire and romance in Schuler’s dining room or get cozy in the quiet atmosphere of the Signature room, which we plan to open for the special occasion. (Call us to make your reservation and secure the perfect spot!)
What’s Valentine’s without a little bubbly? Enjoy a sparkling wine from our extensive menu or live it up with a cocktail made special for Valentine’s Day, such as a Chocolate-Covered Cherry for Two, French Kiss (ooh la la!) or Valentine Mule. For our beer drinkers, might we suggest our Signature Schuler’s Brew made especially for us by Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan? It’s the best.
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a Lover’s Salad. Win Schuler is credited with creating a unique mixture of greens, cheeses, crispy prosciutto, egg, mushrooms, toasted almonds, fresh-sliced strawberries and topped with a sweet and sour house dressing. “I can still see him delivering his handiwork with a wink, pointing out that the salad was only good for a few hours and that it shouldn’t be served to unescorted men,” says Hans Schuler. Win would often duck into the kitchen to make the salad himself! Offered only during the week of Valentine’s Day.
Everything tastes pretty amazing (we may be just a bit biased), and you can peruse our custom Valentine’s Menu here. This menu reflects homemade, seasonal creations meant to be shared. (Think Lady and the Tramp with that single strand of spaghetti.) Until then, consider wooing your date with the classics: Lobster Tail, Steak and Lobster, or our Signature Prime Rib dinner.
A Valentine’s Day meal isn’t complete without dessert. All our desserts are made fresh daily by our in-house bakery. Split our classic Crème Brulee, Signature Coconut Snowball, or Baker’s New York Style Cheesecake with your sweetie. We have a number of dessert wines, coffee, and cordials on hand and ready to pour.
We understand that February 14th (a Wednesday) may be a difficult time to squeeze in a Valentine’s celebration. That’s why we are offering this special promotion all week long. Come during the week of Valentine’s Day to enjoy a special dining experience–complete with Lover’s Salad–and take a gift card home with you – a token of our appreciation for choosing Schuler’s.
Expect a wonderful night out with your love, and relax with trademark Schuler’s hospitality any day, all week long. Valentine’s tends to get a bit busy in our neck of the woods, so we suggest making reservations in advance. Call (269) 781-0600 or visit us online to reserve your spot today!
